Le Stanze del Cardinale offers Bed&Breakfast accomodation in the hearth of Pavia, probably an ancient tower, in a place where in the 16th century was located the building used by the engineers of the Cathedral, among them Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci, working at the project of building the 3rd larger dome in Italy. Today, in those same places, Le Stanze del Cardinale offers an accomodation where the warmth of a home merges with the comforts of a small boutique hotel for those guests who want to live the experience of being in the center of a millenial city full of history and culture. Here spaces are not huge, but always carefully furnished. The exquisite care for each detail matches the almost monastic rigour of the entire structure (probably an old tower) also thanks to several ‘little luxuries’ that meet the expectations of even the most demanding guests. All rooms on the upper floors enjoy unique vistas: some on the Cathedral, others on the rooftops of the old city. In these rooms, antique furniture and paintings coexist with all sorts of modern comforts: air-conditioning, satellite TV, and free WiFi Internet connection.
